Pedestrians account for over 17.5 percent of all fatalities in motor vehicle traffic crashes, and the majority of these deaths occur at uncontrolled crossing locations such as mid-block or un-signalized intersections. These are among the most common locations for pedestrian fatalities generally because of inadequate pedestrian crossing facilities and insufficient or inconvenient crossing opportunities, all of which create barriers to safe, convenient, and complete pedestrian networks.
Please join the Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP) webinar hosted by the Federal Highway Administrations Center for Local-aid Support (CLAS) to discuss countermeasures to keep pedestrians safe at uncontrolled crossing locations, including:
- Road Diets
- Pedestrian hybrid beacons (PHBs)
- Pedestrian refuge islands
- Raised crosswalks
- Crosswalk visibility
